James Madison Papers

Charles J. Ingersoll to James Madison, 28 April 1836

Washington April 28/ 36

My dear Sir

I have come thus far with a design long cherished to afford myself the gratification of paying you and Mrs. Madison a visit at Montpellier. Our friend Gov. Coles on whom I called for the purpose before leaving Philadelphia has apprised me of the way. I find here that the steamboat for Fredericksburg leaves Washington every morning at six oclock which will enable me I understand to reach Orange court house in the evening. I intend therefore to set off next Sunday morning, with my daughter who is my companion, and I hope to have the happiness of seeing you soon after this letter—With best respects to Mrs Madison I am your faithful and obedient Servant

C J Ingersoll
